    Here's a backlit image I shot using a gold reflector to light her face. Obviously the gold, coupled with her tan was a bit much.

    I've been playing with this image in Lightroom without much luck.

    If anyone out there has any ideas on how to tone down the orange cast and add some pop to the photo, feel free to do so. Swi1tchFX where are you. LOL :)

    Tks

    I don't think it's so much color as it is focus. It looks like her face is out of focus to me.

    yeah, focus is a bit soft ... i'm still concerned about the "gold" look .. i mean if the concensus says the color looks fine, i'm good with it .. just seems to be too much of a big spash of gold.

    Yea maybe a little too orange on her face, but otherwise it just looks like it was shot in the morning or just before the sun went down.

    Try a cooling filter, blue, vary the opacity till you think you've got it, sharpen n repost. H

    This photo feels very masculine.
